Short Bio: I am an artificial intelligence enthusiast. During my master studies I was mainly focused toward machine learning solutions for computer vision problems. I developed part of my master thesis in Japan, at Tohoku University, during which I had the opportunity to work on a real autonomous car. The main subject of my master thesis was autonomous driving; I developed a complete detection and classification procedure for traffic sign recognition altogether with a localization algorithm for the vehicle.
An extension of my master thesis has been presented at ACIVS 2016.

From February to October 2016 I worked as researcher at University of Rome La Sapienza and I was enrolled into the soccer robots team S.P.Q.R. Team.

My new field of study is Swarm Robotics and Swarm intelligence. I am currently enrolled in the S.A.G.A. project, i.e. Swarm Robotics for Agricoltural Application.

Since October 2016 I am working at the National Research Council of Italy, at the LARAL laboratory.

Since November 2016 I am a Ph.D. student at University of Rome La Sapienza.

Personal Bio: I was born the 10th of August, 1988 at Terni (Italy). I grew up in Civita Castellana, a small town near Rome.

Personal interests: Tabletop gamer (in the German way). Volleyball lover (although some "missing" bones). I love photography, an heritage of my mother. I love shooting pictures of urban environments as well as natural landscapes.
